I’ve been thinking about what could I style for you this week. Then I realized I mention jeans and jeans outfits in each post, but now when the summer is in the full swing I rarely style shorts, and I wear them most of the time when the weather doesn’t play a game with us. Shorts are great to style as they can be dressed down or dressed up as well. If you are not so sure, keep scrolling down to see how I style shorts.

How To Style a Shorts

Shorts don’t need to be considered casual wear only.  Pair of shorts can be even styled in a more dress-up way, especially when you get them in a tailor-fit or longer than your regular jeans shorts. Shorts do not just look great with the white shirt but I fell in love with the outfits when the shorts are worn with a blouse. They look great over the weekend but also can be worn to the office. You need to choose the right fit and length.

It’s In The Details

When I say it’s in the details I mean to look for a more tailored short, with the hems or appropriate length. We need to consider if we’ll wear them only over the weekend or if we would like to take them to the office. No one wants to look like coming home from a football match, we would like to get that flattering and ooh so chic office look but in the shorts that are easily worn with the trainers over the weekend. I found both of these shorts precisely what I would add to my wardrobe.

Low-waist or the High-waist

It’s everyone’s personal choice, but it’s the same as with jeans. The high-waisted style gives you a much more flattering shape than a low waist. If there is something to hide, the high-waist or mid-waist is your go-to style.

The Best Colour Choice

For me there is nothing to think about, it would be black for a few reasons. We want to take a seat whenever we want to, grass or the bench in the park, our clothes shouldn’t be restrictive. Navy would be a great option too, and some of us can’t imagine a summer without white shorts. Everything is good as long as it fits with your wardrobe. Or if you like to experiment a bit, you can go completely in a different direction than your usual style. Shorts are here only for a few months so you can enjoy summer to the fullest.

Take Them To The Autumn

After a beautiful summer always comes colourful autumn. But it doesn’t mean you need to pack all your summer clothes under the bed or hide it at the back of the wardrobe. Or at least not yet. Shorts can be easily styled in the autumn, but instead of t-shirts can be layered with a cashmere sweater or with a blazer or denim jacket.
